When you think July 4th, you usually don’t think wedding, but what better day to celebrate…as it was 2 years ago to the day that Blake proposed! There were fireworks in the air and everyone showed up ready to party at Blake and Leah’s wedding at the Children’s Museum of the Upstate in downtown Greenville, SC.
Blake and Leah met while attending college at Florida State University. They were out at a local pub and a guy was hitting on Leah and she didn’t like it. She grabbed Blake and asked him to save her, and the two of them have been together ever since! These two make a perfect couple and Blake truly is a gentleman taking such good care of Leah and making sure she is not only safe from creepy guys at bars, but also making her laugh on a daily basis!
Their wedding day started with me and Charlie showing up at the hotel to get Leah getting in her dress and then it was off to the Upstate Children’s Museum for the first look with Leah’s dad. Formal photos before of the girls and then the guys. Lots of laughs and silly moments like always, and then it was ceremony time. And I can’t say enough about all the flowers. The flowers were all grown by the bride and her family and arranged by Leah’s Mom. All the colors and all so different yet so amazing! The ceremony took place in the center of the museum and made for some pretty neat shots from above too! Couples portraits after the ceremony, oh my where do I even start!?!?!?! These portraits came out ridiculously amazing! The light was perfect and Leah and Blake were into it and their smiles and happy moments together….it was just perfect!
Reception dancing and cake cutting fun into the night and even got to watch the fireworks in downtown Greenville fire off for July 4th! A glow stick exit out of the museum ended the night and what a fun night it was! So happy that this couple let us capture their day and we wish them nothing but the best! This Upstate Childrens Museum Wedding was a great one!
A huge thanks to these amazing vendors for helping full off this amazing day!
